Dodoitsu on Water


Dodoitsu on Water


Feel rain from under these clouds

or water by the river

or waves of salt on the beach

these are roads to sea.


Great whales of Earth in oceans

ocean’s salty cold water

to pick up fluids with a spoon

like fine river sand.


Sailboat on breeze

a forward ray upon wave

to break crest at eye level

majestic and spined.


Drop of water on amber

veins on fruit bending a stem

to pull weight past infancy

larger than a pea.


Water movement of plummage

on purple Blackberry Bush

trampled by a lone Grizzly

bear enjoys the rain.


Birds away and back again

fly on moss near dung beetle

caravan of ants on wall

lake of freshwater.



The arched wing of a seagull

away birds sail off cliff

sudden flurry near the sun

moving starts on glass.


Trading precious time for tide

run in water with straw shoes

flying fishscale the surface

wet song about love.


The edge of a foaming creek

put a finger in water

put a foot into the pond

slap waters surface.


Pebble falls into still pool

each ripple melancholy

minnow quickly swim away

nature shouts three times.


Music from running water

deer trails covered with thick mud

every track overfilled

a lone Mud Skipper.


After climbing through thicket

and bounding over boulders

one must lay down near flowers

and drink cold water.



To heap stones along a stream

damn up fresh water creek

in hopes to start collection

of some poetry.


This year of water poets

emerging from the deep wave

covered in dark green sea weed

to wait for a word.


Truckee river near Reno

near Sierra Mountain Range

great valley below Tahoe

drained, planted, watered.


Rivers from Desolation

from melted snow cap mountains

the loneliest peak of all

will provide water.


Water flowing to one place

constant cycle Earth and Sky

rain bring an end to this drought

finally thin fresh paint.


Sea bottom shell and coral

warm water Florida Beach

spend as much time in water

as necessary.
